Shen Yueyue, Vice-Chairperson of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress and President of the All-China Women's Federation (ACWF), met Sia Nyama Koroma, First Lady of Sierra Leone, in Beijing on January 5, 2018. Koroma visited China at ACWF's invitation.

During the meeting, Shen spoke of the friendly relations and of women's exchanges between China and Sierra Leone. She noted the countries have been sincere, mutually supportive friends since they established diplomatic relations 47 years ago.

When Sierra Leone's President, Ernest Bai Koroma, visited China in December 2016, he and Chinese President Xi Jinping decided to establish the China-Sierra Leone comprehensive strategic cooperative partnership. Xi pointed out that both sides should promote people-to-people and cultural exchanges, and that they should deepen the bilateral friendship.

Shen said China is willing to work with Sierra Leone to implement the consensus reached by the two heads of state, by strengthening exchanges and cooperation, especially those involving culture, education, health, youth and women's affairs. She said she hopes women from both countries will make efforts together to deepen the friendly partnership between them, and between China and Africa, and will promote gender equality. Shen also discussed with Koroma the significance and major achievements of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC), which was held in October 2017.

Koroma praised CPC for its achievements during the congress, and she said Sierra Leone will learn more about China's experience in development, and that Sierra Leone will help strengthen friendly exchanges between Chinese and Sierra Leonean women.
